Summer Is Ending

IMG_7235

We have spent the past few days in and around of Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. Soon, I will upload a gallery of what I have seen so far, but until then I leave you with this thought – the 1st of September is only 12 days away…

 

Depressing, isn’t it?

Seasons change

The first one was taken on 29.11.2012, the second one on 12.10.2013. The angle isn’t quite right, I will try to fix that when I take the Spring and Summer pictures.

My (now) 13 year old dachshund, on her birthday, doing her old tricks. Age may have slowed her down slightly, but it has not changed any habits 🙂

It’s very difficult to gather up frozen leaves, as I discovered a couple of years ago, so this time I was determined to do the job before snowfall.

Drew the curtains this morning and there it was – frost. First time this autumn and didn’t even clear up till it was almost noon.
